Thank you for your query.

I can understand your concern when you are told that your daughter is suffering from asthma. It is too early to label it as chronic. Children at this age can present as asthma following a Family history of asthma, allergy, eczema may be pointers that the child may be developing it too.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back for any clarifications or if you would like to share more facts.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
